What Makes Our Basement Flood Cleanup Services Exceptional?
We don’t happen to engage our basement frequently because almost everything stored there is not for daily use. You find yourself going to the basement twice or thrice a week. It literally irritates waking up one morning to find your basement flooded and your valuables soaked in water. That’s the most disappointing thing that can kick-start your day. How then do you handle such mishaps? That remains the main confusion among many homeowners because they don’t know where to start or what step to take first.
General Guidelines and Steps to Take
- It is imperative that you first turn off the main electricity switch to the basement. You definitely need to access the basement to assess the water level and the extent of damage. You can’t risk this with the basement power on because that would be suicidal in itself.
- Protect yourself. You still don’t know the cause of the flood yet. There could be some hot water down there or some sewage water, which may cause you severe bacterial or fungal infections. Wear gloves, gumboots and some sort of protective clothes like an overall.
- Determine the cause of the flood. Common causes of flood in your basement may include broken water pipes, damaged sewerage system, blocked drainage system or even leaking basement walls. In some cases, the water may be leaking from the basement floors.
It is advisable that you open the basement windows to avoid suffocation in the event the flood was caused by blockage in the septic tank. It is only then that you can embark on primary remedies such as using your sump pump to remove the water before contacting the services of basement flood cleanup specialists.
